We would like to thank all of our customers for coming to enjoy our exceptional level of accommodation, service and food during the past year of 2020. We experienced a very intense and concentrated Summer season that was shortened due to the concerns of rising numbers of Coronavirus infections. At this early point in mid-February 2021, amidst a 2nd and more aggressive wave of the COVID virus, we are still forced to suspend our opening under the sanitary crisis.
La Métairie des Songes chambres d’hôtes (as all other sectors in the hospitality industry) are subject to closures under current governmental restrictions of food service. Therefore, in measure of these regulations, we are sad to announce that our intended re-opening from Saturday 27th March 2021 must be postponed until further notice when we receive official permission, allowing us to serve evening meals once again (of which are currently prohibited) and breakfasts in the correct location of our dining room.
We look forward to the near future when we can offer the full spectrum of our services and continue in the true spirit of our highly acclaimed guest house.
Each customer who has stayed with us in the past and placed us within the TOP 1% BEST CHAMBRES D’HÔTES IN FRANCE, will know that cleanliness has always been our one of our highest priorities (amongst comfort, service and renowned food!). We shall, however, be increasing our vigilance towards disinfecting many trafficked areas of the house (staircases, light switches, etc) and can continue to assure all guests of our highest levels of attention to sanitation and distancing that are necessary during a pandemic.
Clare and Mark Newton are proud to be the owners of this leading chambres d’hôtes in the Lot department. For the 9th consecutive year we have been placed within the top 1% ‘Best of the Best’ Bed & Breakfasts in the entirety of France by Trip Advisor ‘Traveller’s Choice’ since 2013. This award given for accommodation of outstanding quality & service combined with unsurpassable evening meals served by past restaurateurs.
We distinguish ourselves by providing a highly personal level of welcome to guests, from their initial enquiry to the arrival. Our home and its grounds are maintained to provide an ambience of genuine relaxation to our customers – whether sitting under the dappled shade of the Tilleul tree by the sunny terrace, in the large ‘séjour’ with ample comfortable seating or in the privacy of the award-winning bedrooms, we want all our guests to enjoy the tranquility of the timeless French countryside.
…and we have a unique surprise!
With past cooking awards from over 13 years restaurant experience, culminating in 28 years at professional level, our four-course dinner reflects our passion to showcase the very best of gourmet and locally sourced produce to a very high level of precision.
With much gratitude to many of our customers (who possess extensive fine-dining knowledge), they have reputed us equivalent to many of the finest gastronomic venues in France; making la Métairie des Songes a destination for all food lovers.
